The goal of the project is to enhance the ability of rural farmers to adapt to disaster risks especially those risks influenced by climate change. The aim of the consultancy is to build the capacity of small farmers in three Eastern Caribbean Countries by improving their ability to respond to the threat of natural hazards through disaster risk mitigation and resilience building.
The specific objective is to provide assistance to NGOs to support small scale farmers to provide equipment, services, agrotechnology and training for the adoption of disaster mitigation and sustainable agricultural practices to increase their ability to adapt to naturally occurring hazards and to enhance productivity. A minimum of 3 sub-grants in this first round will be provided to NGOs in Dominica, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines to provide innovative approaches to disaster mitigation and preparedness to small farmers. The Grants to NGOs will assist small farmers to undertake actions aimed at mitigating the impact of natural disasters on their operations and strengthening their resilience. Consideration will be given to the following:
1. The creation of seed banks to assist in post-disaster recovery.
2. The use of non-agricultural plants for hazard mitigation such as the prevention of flooding
3. Intercropping the planning of water-resistant crops
4. The use of greenhouse technology to assist in mitigating losses
5. The creation of adequate drainage and water storage facilities
6. Sensitization to crop insurance plans
In order to be eligible for a grant, the applicant must be non-profit-making and be a legally registered organisation.
Actions must take place in Dominica, Grenada or St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The total available funding amount is $36,000. Grants may range from $8,000-$12,000.
